History of laser surgery. Dry eyes, white patch below iris, at nights lights look bright, eyes red. Can anything be done for redness and dryness?

Hi, I suffer with with dry eyes for which I am using Refresh Tears . I had laser surgery about 4 years ago. Yesterday i noticed on my sclera on my right eye, just below the iris that there is a white patch which is brighter than my sclera. I have noticed that my eyes are always dry, at night the lights are bright, and it is harder to focus at night. My eyes are red. I do not feel any pain. To watch tv i need to put tears so that i am able to see more clearly. If not my vision is slightly burred. Is there are anything that can be done regarding the reddness and dryness and what is that white patch below my iris.

dryness of eyes is most common side effect of refractive surgery. you have ti keep putting refresh tears in eyes if symptoms persist you can put double strength refresh tears or optive eye drop.
white patch can be because of conjunctval xerosis or bitot's spot dont worry for that. keep putting tear substitute.
take care and further queries are invitited
